Summary
  • The birth of a nation (2016): Nat Turner is a literate American slave and preacher. His financially strained owner accepts an offer to use Nat's preaching to subdue unruly slaves. But as Nat witnesses countless atrocities, he orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom
  • 12 years a slave (2013): The harrowing account of a black man, born free in New York State, who was drugged, kidnapped, and sold into slavery in 1841. Having no way to contact his family, and fearing for his life if he told the truth, Solomon Northup was sold from plantation to plantation in Louisiana, toiling under cruel masters for twelve years before meeting Samuel Bass, a Canadian who finally put him in touch with his family, and helped start the process to regain his freedom
  • Race (2016): Jesse Owens' quest to become the greatest track and field athlete in history launches him onto the world stage of the 1936 Olympics, where he faces off against Adolf Hitler's vision of Aryan supremacy
  • Red tails (2012): In 1944, the war has taken its toll on Allied forces in Europe, and a squadron of black pilots in Italy known as the Tuskegee Airmen are finally given the chance to prove themselves in the sky, even as they battle discrimination on the ground
  • 42 (2013): History was made in 1947, when Jackie Robinson became the first African American allowed to sign to a white major league baseball team. 42 tells the life story of Robinson and his history-making signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers under the guidance of team executive Branch Rickey
  • Selma (2014): Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s historical struggle to secure voting rights for all people. A dangerous and terrifying campaign that culminated with an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1964
